The Spectroscopy of Hydrogen-Like Highly Ionised Atoms

  • J. D. Silver

Abstract

When the organisers of this meeting on the hydrogen atom very kindly asked me to give a lecture, they asked me to give something of an overview of the spectroscopy of hydrogen-like highly ionised atoms. This is now a fairly active field of study, so I shall concentrate on some recent work which has been carried out by my group in collaboration with Daniel Dietrich of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, and I shall only give brief references to the work of other groups. I hope they will forgive me, and not think that by magnifying our work, I am seeking to minify theirs. I shall also speculate a little on how the field might develop in the reasonably near future.
